My shopping Trip.
I headed into town last Tuesday to pick up a few items for school that I had apparently 'forgotten'. I also needed to pop into M & S to get some short sleeve, non iron shirts as it is too hot for the long sleeve ones , a jumper and a blazer my son is currently wearing. A quick aside here, I do find their uniform second to none. It is great quality, not overpriced and lasts really well. It may not be the cheapest , but I am not always on the look out for the cheapest , but the best value for money which means it will last.
On arrival I was greeted with a sea of OAPs and blue rinses. I don't mean to be rude at all , my granny was my favourite person in the whole world. However, it is quite disconcerting when you are admiring an item of clothing , you turn around to find a 90 year old picking up the same item. One of us has got it wrong and I am hoping it isn't me!
Anyway I battled on and came across the shoes .I had intended looking at some boots here following Avril at School Gate Styles post on the fab M & S ones she found, but was astounded at the size of the shoe department. Row upon row upon row of shoes and boots and not the type of solid shoe I remember M & S stocking. I could have easily come home with 4 or 5 pairs of boots, ranging from £25 to £60. I was really quite impressed. Sounding like I need to get out more now!
|This was one aisle - it was 3 times as wide as this!|
|Purple ankle Boots - lovely.|
|I was very tempted by these .....|
I did restrain myself, remembered that I was here for uniform and walked upstairs to get on with the job in hand. However, on arrival at the till, somehow I had managed to grab myself these little beauties for £29.99 - Oops a daisy !
I couldn't really justify spending much on another pair of boots . I have some lovely long boots from last year that are just gorgeous. I have also purchased these in Geox on a recent trip to London. I went for comfort and those of you who know me well.....yes they are totally and utterly flat. No heel, I repeat , no heel.
I think one of the redeeming features of Autumn and Winter is our ability to wear boots - love them. Have you ventured out in yours yet or are you still clinging onto the remnants of the sunshine in your peep toes?
